Benign breast disorders and diseases are commonly encountered in clinical practice. Though reliable statistics are not available, the incidence of such disorders, is thought to exceed that of carcinoma breast by a factor of ten or more. Cultural inhibitions often prevent the woman from seeking medical attention for a breast-related problem. Further, non-cancerous conditions are deemed unworthy of attention. Often, patients are subjected to needless surgical biopsies and unnecessary lifelong surveillance, with psychological consequences. And it seems a matter of luck that the patient receives appropriate management at all.This is tragic, as the risk of breast cancer is generally lower among women in third world countries as a whole, as compared to women in the more developed countries. Yet the common problems of the breast have received scant attention so far, in developing countriesBenign Breast Diseases was written to focus attention on these common problems, to enable the medical practitioner to distinguish the benign from the malignant condition.Features:The book is well illustrated with line drawingsThe book contains colour plates spread over 20 pagesA useful guide to breast self-examination has been included as an annexureAlgorithms for the management of breast disorders and diseases have been included.
